As an experienced cruiser, you know that finding a good Cruise Port Hotel is very important. A good start to your booked trip means a relaxed start to your cruise. But choosing the right hotel in a new city can be tricky. We have used our ( Dutch) experience and the experience of other cruisers to make a great selection of the best cruise port hotels in Amsterdam. To make the best choice for a wonderful start to your cruise. We even managed to arrange some discounts for our readers!
As Dutch, and Amsterdam connoisseurs, we know that Amsterdam has a great number of hotels. In recent years, a lot of beautiful hotels have been added to the list. But there are also a lot of hotels that you certainly do not want to stay in. As far as we are concerned, a number of criteria are important and which a hotel must meet:
–The location must be good in relation to the cruise port, Central Station and the city center with its attractions.
–The hotel should reflect Amsterdam. You have to know where you wake up in the morning and you need to feel the city vibe. We don’t like the thirteen in a dozen hotels. Whether you stay in Singapore or in Washington, the monotony and uniformity of some hotels do not appeal to us. A bit of country and city identity doesn’t hurt as far as we are concerned and we want to ‘feel’ the new experience.
–We deserve optimal service and a good bed. We do not choose to stay in the low segment, but we want a good price for what is on offer. If we already suggest and find a three-star hotel, it must be really very good. The perfect start to a perfect cruise does not start in a creepy hotel, right?
These are the criteria that, in our opinion, these 15 hotels meet perfectly. Something for everyone. Are you looking for a hotel within walking distance of the cruise port, do you want to stay in the bubbling city center or do you opt for delicious luxury? We have made a selection for you of the top 15 cruise port hotels in Amsterdam.

Mr. JORDAAN HOTEL ★★★
When you are up for something else, a little different from the average Amsterdam hotel this three-star hotel might be an option.
For starters, they are slightly off the beaten track. Located at Bloemgracht, an enchanting 17th-century canal just off of the Prinsengracht. In the heart of the Jordaan, the sassy, smart village in midtown with its exciting art studios, quirky little shops, and authentic Amsterdam bars & cafés – where Sundays get as comfy and as quiet as a tiny French town. That’s the quirky atmosphere of this special hotel.
What’s more: the style goes way back to the sixties, when one day, the founder of this hotel decided to advertise his couch at the local tourist agency. People loved it. So the couch turned into a room, which turned into two, which expanded into a full floor, then into more floors until even the house next door gave in to the hospitable spirit of Mr. Jordaan. You could say he was a pioneer. Started couch surfing before its time. Airbnb-by-phone-and-snail-mail. Stay-with-a-local, well before we even knew ‘local’ was something to aspire to. That is the feel of this hotel.
But what makes this hotel different most, is the guest. Because the truth of the matter is: Mr. Jordaan is for travelers. For decades, it’s been a home away from home for explorers. It’s for the curious, the original. For people who look a little further and leave plenty of room for surprises & little treasures, unnoticed by travel books, tourist guides, and backpack blogs.
Check-in and before you know it, you will consider yourself a true canal dweller, inhabiting Amsterdam’s finest neighborhood & adopting the funky Jordaan lifestyle. You will fit right in.
For the daring and funky cruiser, this can be a new and very special experience! Located in the exact place to be, the spot of Amsterdam.
